Description Enrico Scholz 2003-04-14 17:11:35 EDT
Description of problem:

$ cat <<EOF >Makefile
foo:    CFLAGS+=a
$ touch foo.c
$ CFLAGS=a make foo
cc a a    foo.c   -o foo
make: expand.c:489: allocated_variable_append: Assertion
`current_variable_set_list->next != 0' failed.

(e.g. seen when building valgrind)

This is perhaps an upstream bug but because RHL ships a historic version of
make, I do not know if it happens with the recent 3.80 version also.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Comment 1 Miloslav Trmac 2003-04-15 08:42:56 EDT
Workaround when building valgrind:
instead of just
     env - PATH="$PATH" make
caused this failure to go away. I haven't been able to find out which
environment variable was the culprit though.
Comment 2 Enrico Scholz 2003-04-15 09:29:56 EDT
CPATH is guilty...
